Joke about politics – level 2
A son comes to his father and asks him, “Father, what’s politics?”
His father thinks for a moment and then he starts to speak. “Politics is something like what we have at home. I am a capitalist, I make money, I bring money home. Your mother is a government. She takes my money, she keeps some and she gives the rest to other people.
Our cleaning lady is a working class. She works and we give her money for that. Grandfather is like the police. He controls that the capitalist doesn’t do what he wants to the working class.
And you are people because everything we do we do for you. And your little brother is our future. Do you understand?”
The small boy thinks for a moment and then he says, “I am not sure. I will think about that.”
In the middle of the night the boy wakes up because he smells something bad. It is his little brother. He needs to change his Pampers.
He goes to his parents’ room. There is only his mother. He tries to wake her up but she sleeps very hard. The boy goes to the cleaning lady’s room. There he sees his father in bed with the cleaning lady. They are having a good time together. They don’t see the boy. The boy turns around and in the dark corner there is his grandfather. He is so concentrated on watching his father and the cleaning lady that he doesn’t see the boy. The boy is very sad and goes back to his room.
In the morning his father asks him, “Do you know what politics is?” The boy says, “Yes, I do. But it is different from what you told me yesterday.” Father is shocked, “How is it different?”
The boy says, “The capitalist does what he wants to the working class. The police are watching and do nothing. The government sleeps very hard and people are completely ignored. And our future is in deep shit.
